    Hi, I wonder if someone can be of assistance. This is the message I get when I try to upload to my brand new WP installation
    " Unable to create directory
    /home/dargle/public_html/wp-content/uploads/2011/11. Is its parent
    directory writable by the server?"
    It was uploaded directly from the cpanel.
    Thank you, I look forward to a response...

    Try changing the permissions on the wp-content directory to 766. If you still have problems, try 767, 775 or 777. Once your uploads are working, change the permissions on wp-content back to 755 again and check that everything still works OK.
